For those of you that haven’t heard of Rhode Island-born, Stockholm-based singer Mapei, you will soon.
Having been raised on a mixture of Michael Jackson and rap music, her own sound has a heavy soul influence with hints of pop thrown in. Her latest track “Don’t Wait” only uses touches of acoustic guitar but this highlights to smoothness of her vocals. Towards the end of the song her voice gets more edgy and digital and draws a strong comparison to artist Kelis.
You could listen to this song all day, and I have to admit since I first heard it thats pretty much what I’ve been doing. Even though it’s not quite spring yet, this track is the perfect sound to chill out to when the weather starts to warm up.
